This was an intense weekend to say the least, expectations were high and i think overall the Saturday performance was the most fluid. Phil was on top of his game as evidenced by these recordings.

Friday evening was cool, "Keep on Growin" first set was a pleasant suprise, The AM Dew opener in the second, and the set ending Comes a Time > Sugar Mag > Day Job closed well.

I recall strolling the * "Astroid Belt" at halftime on Saturday, and the spray bottles of lysergic were in full force on the unsuspecting. We had an extra glow flowing out of the Greek that evening as well.

Sundays Cryptical struggled to come across and i definitely recall Phil screaming "Healy" into his microphone more than just once that final day.

And i will agree with many here that 1984 - 1985 was mostly memorable if you were in attendance.

* "Astroid Belt" which it was passionately dubbed at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley was the concrete walkway that divided the general admission pit area from the first level of reserved seating in this classic venue that you had to navigate to get in/out to the concessions and other facilities.
